A large and very interesting collection of local art as well as some classic installations. There isn't even an admission charge if you'll purchase something at their tea room. Wonderful art, some of the best we've seen while traveling in the country.

What a delightful surprise! This museum started with a collection of paintings and sculptures amassed by the early mining magnates and over time morphed into a contemporary exhibit of African artists which is absolutely wonderful. And they have are movies weekly! Don't miss this museum!!
